Hi Folks

My dad is the owner of a CX650 Turbo which he bought a while ago minus amongst other things the ECU.

Now, I know these things are like hens teeth as he has been actively looking for one for well over 3 years, and still no joy.

He has however managed to source a 500 Turbo ECU so my question is two fold really:

Firstly does anyone know of a spare ECU kicking around for a 650 preferably in the UK?

Secondly, can the 500 ECU be re-programmed to suit the 650 parameters?

Many thanks.

Tommy.

That is a difficult one.....

Needed from a CX500T :
  • ECU reprogrammed ( I can do that )
  • CDI ( Analog ignition module, not sure with the larger combustion chamber if this will work )
  • Wiring loom fuel system
  • Sensor P1
  • Sensor Pign
  • Sensor Bracket
  • Flywheel
  • Crankshaft sensors
  • Intake Manifold
  • Intake tube for P1

Important, do you want to drive or tinker around....

If your answer is drive, I would sell the CX650 Turbo and buy a CX500 Turbo.

There are enough people with a spare CX650 ECU as a backup for their own Turbo, which maybe could be tempted to buy your "project" and install their spare one ( I would )

Hi Tommy, if you don't want to go through the long drill that Pim has described, send me a PM and we can work on getting you a 650 turbo ECU.

Hi All

Thank you for your thought provoking replies, it does seem like a head ache to try and reprogramme these things.

Ultimaty, he would like to get the bike up and running and to be able to use it, so I think your kind offer PIM might be too complex and time consuming for all concerned.

Edinlr, I have sent you a PM, hopefully we can get something sorted.

Thanks again all.

Tommy.

It is usual to supply more information; location, asking price, pictures, other details.

By the way, welcome to the forum. Fill out your profile with location, details of your bike(s), that way people don't have to ask. Check out the forum FAQ.

I was not thinking you would actually go "my" route but your question pop's up once in a while and I gave an extensive answer for future references / questions like yours

Pim's way might be cheaper, I see on CMSNL that the ECU alone is $3510.82 USD, but they are sadly out of stock.

Thanks again Pim, I understand it was a full and extensive reply which my Dad was very grateful as he has been wrestling with the conversion for a while, the amount of work involved has certainly put him off of going down that particular route.
